31st Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Buccaneers 32, Bears 31: November 19, 1989 The 1989 Chicago Bears season was filled with finishes that seemed to defy anything a Hollywood writer might come up with.  The Bears had seemed to be their usual dominating selves in the first four weeks of the season.  They [...]

32nd Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game

32nd Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Vikings 21, Bears 20: October 4, 1992 Anyone who was alive and watching the Bears in 1992 remembers this game.  And those that weren’t have certainly seen replays.  Within this game came the final unraveling of Bears legend Mike Ditka, and it ended up being the final [...]

33rd Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game

33rd Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Bears 17, Dolphins 14: November 13, 1994 The 1994 Miami Dolphins were in the waning years of Don Shula’s reign.  Dan Marino was still their quarterback, and while Miami was seemingly always in transition, they were still strong.  Indeed, the Dophins would finish 10-6 that season and [...]

36th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game

36th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Bears 12, Packers 10: November 23, 1986 Would the 2-9 Green Bay Packers be able to make it a game, playing at Soldier Field against the conference-leading 9-2 Chicago Bears?  Being a Bears-Packers game in the 1980′s, of course they would. But one Packer had an additional [...]

37th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game

37th Most Memorable Chicago Bears Game since 1979 Bears 23, Packers 21: December 18, 1983 This was the coldest game in Soldier Field history, before being surpassed by the Bears-Packers contest in 2008.  The temperature hovered at 0 degrees for the whole game, and the Packers would need a victory to squeak into the playoffs.

Bears Add RB in Supplemental Draft

Somewhat surprising.  In yesterday’s little-publicized NFL Supplemental Draft, the Bears added Brigham Young running back Harvey Unga, basically by spending their 2011 seventh round pick on him.  Good job by Neil Hayes of the Sun-Times, I was going to say that in my 32 years of watching Bears football, I can’t remember them ever making [...]
